    How to extend shrinked volume to C Drive

    Once I have installed OpenSuse OS on my HP laptop. Now I removed it. I have separate partition left with it. I want to extend it to my C Drive but after shrinking it, I am not able to extend that partition to my C drive. I have very less space left with my C Drive. Please tell me how to extend that partition to my C Drive.

    Hey Rohit,

    Use this software: Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    Best advised take a backup before you attempt anything like that.

    It's hard to read the screenshot but it appears that the space you want to add to C: has two other partitions in the way -- and with those there, you can not expand C: into that partition.

    In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. You have to delete a contiguous partition, before you can merge partitions in Disk Management. therefore, My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version will do. you can use it to either move the unallocated space and extend partition with disk Management or directly merge partitions.
    Even though you will not lose the data in the process, be sure to backup any data on the disk that you cannot lose first just to be safe in case something happens. Say a power outage while in the middle of merging partitions.
